Spacecraft Trajectory#

The calculation of a spacecraft trajectory1 are performed in 3 stages:

  1. You need to configure your choice of orbital configuration (choice of a metakernel or/and a set of kernels, the main observer and a target).

  2. You will need to choose, which temporal window of the trajectory you want to study.

  3. Then you will have to choose which trajectory properties you want to compute and plot.

  4. [Optional] Filter the data with a given criteria.


It corresponds to the trajectory of the sub-spacecraft point on the target surface. This point is always defined even if the spacecraft is not pointing towards the target.
